Mozaffari Law is a firm born out of a basic commitment to justice and human rights. Its founder, Afshin Mozaffari, has devoted his career to practicing in the area of civil rights and employment law and in protecting the rights of employees.

Mr. Mozaffari began his legal career in defense, and quickly realized that it was a poor fit with his personal beliefs. After witnessing first-hand the devastating effects of workplace discrimination, harassment and retaliation on employees whose families depend on them, Mr. Mozaffari founded Mozaffari Law and devoted himself to the pursuit of justice for those workers who are subjected to unfair treatment in the workplace. Mr. Mozaffari’s early defense work provides key insight into the operations and tactics of corporate employers and their lawyers, such that he is able to quickly master the facts of a case and develop effective strategies for achieving the most successful outcome for his clients.

Mr. Mozaffari graduated magna cum laude from Whittier Law School, where he served as Articles Editor on the Whittier Law Review, as an extern to the Honorable Ronald S.W. Lew of the United States District Court and as a certified law clerk in the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. As a result, he developed a great foundation that has led to a commitment to quality and the art of courtroom advocacy.
